The fit and features of this PFD meet my needs when it comes to long distance paddles. I got this specifically for an upcoming 70 mile race in a month. I took it for a test drive on a 24 mile paddle this past weekend and was pleased. My arms did not rub as I paddled, the pockets were easy to work with, the pouch to carry my hydration worked as expected.
Fantastic! It is the best I have ever had!
I don't care for the over-the-head PFDs so this one is great. I love the zipper access and also the front pockets. The waist tabs are good and seem to come loose when I take the PDF off, but stay tight when wearing - intentional or not, it ensures that each time I put it back on, I have to make sure the fit is right, which seems more safe. Highly visible as well. I use for paddling OC-6 and OC-1.
Waiting for my OC1 in June
I’m very happy with my new PFD. It arrived quickly and I found it very easy to fit and adjust so now it’s both secure and very comfortable. On the water I forgot I had it on and enjoyed my session out paddling on the water.
